Notes & Reviews:
Mariss Jansons and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra continue their Mahler cycle with this set of the second and third symphonies. Jansons performed the works during the 2009–10 season as part of a full, chronological series of concerts to commemorate his 150th birthday and the 100th anniversary of Mahler’s death. Once again, Jansons stands out in these performances with his astonishingly keen eye for the smallest details. Like no other, Jansons possesses the ability to integrate all this beautiful detailing into the virtually infinite overarching climaxes that can make listening to Mahler’s symphonies such an exciting experience.
"The Royal Concertgebouw proves once again what a consummate body it can be when thoroughly engaged. Orchestral playing is immaculately voiced, the soundscape superbly balanced, the work's shape presented in one sweeping arc and steered like a freshly polished, custom-built limousine." -International Record Review
"It's always a pleasure to hear warm Concertgebouw horns in noble ensemble, and the woodwinds do beautiful things with the second of the heavenly visions in the [first] movement... Bernarda Fink is the model of feeling gravitas." -BBC Music MagazineNotes & Reviews:
